liked by people in the elite circles in the republican party. governor romney considered him as his running mate, and i believe the reaction to rob portman has been extraordinary. there have been some voices who condemned him and condemned his decision but you hear many prominent republicans being extraordinarily muted including the cpac and what they're saying in reaction to what he's done. they don't agree with him -- >> rose: it would have been different four years ago. >> when dick chainy did it -- >> rose: portman cited cheney and saying go with your conscious. >> look i can't emphasize enough. for insiders it is hard for any republican insider who knows ron portman to say a negative thing about him because he's so extraordinarily well liked and beyond reproach on his conserve fifth credentials on a range of issues. when the history of this is written and when you did an oral history we are moving inexorably to broader accent tons of gay marriage in this country. in the republican party rob portman's decision is part of what raises the consciousness of a lot of republicans wh
-- and sort of lecturing the president. he was sort of a supporter of mitt romney. how do you think he feels cowed by that and will overcompensate for that in these meetings. >> i think there's been a lot of water under the bridge since those meetings that goes back a couple years. there was an israeli election as well as an american election. so i think the dynamics between the two leaders are in a did i place than before, but the bottom line for both of them is they are leaders of their nation. they have to pursue not a personal agenda, and it's not just about how they get along personally. the issue is what's best for both of those countries, and the path ahead is clear, it's better for the u.s. and for israel to head down the path towards a two-state solution. >> putting personal politicians is a lesson we could probably learn here in the united states. thank you. >> thank you very much, alex. >>> the house gop caucus is on board, but rebels had some reservations. is the paul ryan plan an actual budget, a political manifesto or long-term liability. we will discuss when former chief white
. betting on romney victory. here is the re-elected more confident and assertive obama making a trip to israel. did that force netanyahu to be more con ciliatory maybe in. >> at the end of the conference, the prime minister talked about this is second term president and third term prime minister. they are stuck with each other, that's the honest truth. but it is more than that. they are both making a concerted effort to put a few nas ew face this relationship. the main goal is to introduce himself to the israeli public and tell them he has their back. this is coupled with diplomacy. as andrea mentioned, calling him bb, a nickname, an first name, but a nickname, he is sticking to that. he is not saying netanyahu, he is saying bb. so he has been scloes to israel and close to support for israel and they share assess ment on iran. there a clear effort on both parties to start anew and have a better relationship. but it goes beyond the prime minister and president. the prime menster not want just the president to put on a better face to their talks but also for the israeli public to trust
't like. prime minister netanyahu right of center, supported romney in the last presidential election, has at times stopped at president obama, my language, doesn't get it. both of these guys just won elections. they are in the words of a top american official the other day, stuck with each other. and it's very crystal clear today, both of them have decided to try to turn a new page. are they going to be best friends, i think not. but are they going to be better friends? today it appeared they're going to at least try at that. and that makes a difference. when you're dealing with the iran nuclear crisis, the syria civil crisis, the question of whether you can get the palestinians and the israelis back on the table. if they like each other a bit more, it helps when things get difficult. and that's a difficult list. >> people assume that iran may be overshadowing this trip, in a sense, syria has overtaken even iran because of the suggestion that chemical weapons have been used, both sides trying to blame the other side. what do we really know about what may have happened here? >> reporter: n
, a source told me mitt romney has not paid taxes for ten years, he's got a record of this slander and these lies. >> happy wednesday, sean. look, this is a majority leader in the senate that's gotten caught lying many times and when the marine corps says that what he is saying is unsubstantiated, they're saying he's lying again. harry reid has made a habit of being dishonest on the floor of the senate and what he is trying to do is just cover the president's butt on sequester. the president himself started to cover his own butt by playing such silly games as shutting the white house tours down. this is just another version of that. remember, donald trump offered to pay for all those white house tours. >> sean: whoa, whoa, whoa. >> and the president didn't take him up on it. >> sean: and wait a minute, i offered to pay for a week after eric biology golling got start started. by the way, it's off the table, i pay enough in taxes. >> you and bill maher. >> sean: yeah, he's even sick of paying taxes and california democrats are losing him. gee, time to wake up, bill. but here is my po
women. he was despicable in what he said about sandra fluke. but mitt romney talked about the 47%. they may not like each other but they are working together to alienate most of the american people. and that's what happened. >> joan, thank you for being with us. despite the fact that 57% of americans support the nra, why do they keep winning? for gun owners, winning this battle is not the only thing, it's the important thing. background check, 90% of americans support them. let your member of congress and senator know that for you on this issue winning is the only thing. also, you probably have seen this scene by the way, from last week's cpac convention where one participant defended slavery. we're going to talk to an african-american who is doing a black tea about black people who joined the tea party. >>> and going wobbly on ashley judd and taking down other democrats wither had. key democrats, including hillary clinton and bill clinton are lining up with other democrats. fasten your seat belt. >>> finally, why is cnn's dana bash running after michele bachmann. what is it that
to their communities. >> now, the republican party -- mitt romney talked about during the campaign briefly, he talked about nuclear energy and the need. but republicans in general, the energy issue has tended to be sort of stereotype as climate change. do republicans need to, as we are talking about sort of the need for republican renaissance, rebirth, call it what you will, do republicans need to think more broadly about energy and how it fits into this rebranding of the party? and if so, are there one, two or three things that the party should absolutely -- i assume nuclear is part of this, that the party absolutely should embrace to say, look, we're not just the guys that are antiwhat the democrats are proposing on energy and everything else. >> they need to think more broad low on just about everything, i think, but certainly on energy. one of those things is to say, look, we want clean air. we want a good quality of life for people. so that means we need to look at clean energy. cleaner energy means less air pollutants which means healthier people. if you can call something that's contagious an
where mitt romney ran are vulnerable. here we have mark prior of arkansas, begihh of alaska, mary landrieu and a tlot of these people who are passionate on gun rights will remember every election from now on and vote accordingly against these people. >> well, chris, it's true that i would suggest to senators that there's some things worse than not being reelected. but i also think they give the gun lobby way too much credit. let's take harry reid, who has coward before the gun lobby if harry reid thinks it's gun lobbyists who got him back in the election, he's nuts. he lost the male vote. it was the obama coalition of union voters, young voters who put harry reid back in office. people like harry reid give the gun lobby far too much credit. >> sam, what's your reaction to that? >> they say the same thing, that the nra has trumped that. and the only thing i would add to that is this. we've seen a tlot of recent pollings, specifically background checks, and it's universally popular. i don't see any other issue polling at 90% popularity. if you read specific issues it might dip. this
will recall by the last election by a three-to-one margin republicans lost to hispanic voters, mitt romney lost to hispanic voters. so they understand it's in their self-interest to get something done. so you kind of see everything moving in that direction. >> and the potential stumbling block? >> of course. there are stumbling blocks. look, it depends on what that pathway leads to. does it lead to citizenship? does it lead to some kind of legal status? and how can you ensure people that the border is secure first? you know, everybody -- republicans i talk to go back to the days when ronald reagan passed immigration reform. and the problem with that everyone agrees was that the borders were not secure first. so republicans are nervous that that could happen again. and they want to make sure that doesn't occur. there's also another stumbling block in the guest worker program. how do you provide for guest workers to come into this country? that's an issue for democrats in particular. so there are stumbling blocks that would have been done years ago. but again political self-interest is at st
that netenyahu's closeness, what should we call it, bon homie with mitt romney, there was a lot of, a lot of armchair what is it, analysis of the relationship between the two men. and they seem to really be overcompensating for whatever daylight exists between them. they were like literally wearing matching outfits. >> holding hands. >> there was the ipad app. the unshakeable unbreakable alliance logo and the actual pomp and circumstance. i thought it was really interesting, netenyahu's office released this statement after president obama's speech -- p.m. benjamin netenyahu thanks u.s. president barack obama for his unreserved support for the state of israel. prime minister netenyahu shares president obama's view regarding a need to advance peace that insures the security of israel's citizens. if that is not like acme-like boilerplate, official statement i don't know what is. >> these two guys need each other more than ever and netenyahu has a government and a coalition that is not right behind him. that's actually going to be an obstacle to what him and obama want to do and obama is a se

at all. mitt romney and that campaign was criticized for largely avoiding college voters and maybe sort of giving up on them and writing them off. >> guest: yeah. i think that history is when you actually go to young street voters and reach out to them you have a chance of getting their vote. barack obama in 2008 -- one of the fascinating things about his campaign was that he actually rap a program in iowa, geared on high school students called barack stars because in iowa you can vote in the primary if you're 17 and will be 18 in the general. so he went to all these high schools targeting high school seniors and juniors who were 17 and engaging them and that is one of the reasons he actually won the iowa caucus is because of this unprecedented engagement on the part of 17-year-old high school students which he identified as a potential audience. >> host: will wishes 2016 on the horizon -- >> guest: never too early. >> host: what does a democrat running, let's say it's hillary clinton -- or a republican running -- let's say it's chris christie, for example -- what do they need to keep i
worked with mitt romney's campaign, vice president of target point consulting. let me first say it is a treat to have you both here for me. i'm thrilled. >> great to be here. >> it's a fascinating topic. let me start by showing some nbc wall street journal numbers to talk about the trend. so in 2004, the question was asked, do you favor or oppose same-sex marriage. 30% favor, 62% oppose. today, eight and a half years later, 51% favor, 40% oppose. let me start with you. the trend seems quite clear. am i missing something? i want to make sure we're painting the whole picture. >> no, you're not missing anything. it's a pretty spectacular time to be a student of public opinion. because we're in the midst of one of the most profound public opinion shifts in history right now. everything is moving up. >> and what do you do, joel? you've -- i mean, look, you and i have had many conversations about the data and what's good and bad. but i would say that broadly what it looks like here is all the polling suggests things moving in a certain direction. what explains when something moves lik
of the economy. i mean, just for the sake of argument, mitt romney, all right, maybe not the best candidate but, still, a tremendous change he was offering, the governor was offering. tremendous change. people rejected that. and wanted this malaise and this giant colossus spending. maybe this is off othe table forever. maybe the entitlement state which mrs. clinton will embrace is the wave of the future. >> well, bill, look at one other issue that hasn't been directly mentioned and that's obama care. obama care remains unpopular. >> bill: absolutely. >> distinct possibility it will become even more so. she was for major healthcare reform. presumably she was supporter of obama care although as secretary of state she didn't speak about it is she going to repudiate obama care which may still be beloved by democrats but strongly disliked by a huge segment of the country. that's an issue that could hamstring any democrat running in 2016. so there is a lot out there a lot logical depend on the rules results. if the policy results are not so good. i'm going out on a limb here because she gets the demo

of center, prime minister netanyahu right of center, no question netanyahu favored romney in the presidential election. i talked to a top u.s. official the other day who put it this way, he said "they're stuck with each other." both of these guys just won elections. the president starting his second term. prime minister netanyahu put together his coalition government. iran is a huge policy issue, trying to restart the peace process is a huge issue, if they have a better personal relationship they can get things done. you saw first thing this morning the prime minister tries to crack a joke, he says if you can ditch your security detail, i have a fake mustache and we'll go out and have a few drinks in the bar. it's clear they're trying to at least for the public con sujs to show they're going to work together better on the personal side. >> good to see you, john king there, traveling with the president. >>> the israeli embassy released a video for president obama's trip. we want everybody to take a look at this. ♪ thank you for being a friend ♪ traveled down the road an

is on the backs of the american taxpayers. charles: this is one of the romney's piece about the president. do you think there is a sense that it won't have to be paid back? >> this is so much different than a home mortgage. you have to save a down payment, you have to have a job that you have to have the income that can be rationally used to pay back the mortgage. a student loan is much different. this will be paid back on the expectation of future earnings of the student. if you look at the ways this is structured right now, clearly the government does not anticipate that some of these borrowers are going to pay this money back. if you do not pay it back over 25 years -- the interest rates and whether these loans are forgiven or paid back at all is ultimately up to congress. we can win the allegiance of all these voters by forgiving their loans. i think it is a very serious possible scenario. charles: overall, student loans have taken over everything at this point. >> you are talking about $588 billion given out to the younger generation. marco rubio pointed out he had personally just finished p
in 2012, governor romney, gop nominee, he couldn't use obamacare as issue. as people find out more and more, look what is happening to the tax on medical devices. senate overwhelmingly to repeal it, including 33 democrat senators voted for it. as popular opinion starts to weigh in you will see uprising. administration will be very tempted to use european solutions. think that will set them up for real smackdown in 2014. david: steve forbes portfolio, are you 100% stocks now. >> retirement fund, always invested. ride the storm. if you ride the market you will get whipsawed. i ride the wave. david: good advice. steve, see you tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. on fox news channel. >> terrific. david: shibani. shibani: prices for u.s. farmland have been paradise not only for farmers but investors with prices doubling since 2009. the rapid rise has some wondering if the next bubble to burst isn't on wall street but in fact in the heartland of america? jeff flock will join to us have that story. david: also it is he portfolio indicator. a top strategy tells us why ditching the east and heading sou
the president was elected. there's no doubt that netanyahu preferred romney over obama in the last election. but the fact of the matter is, the president understands as well as netanyahu that the two of them are facing what essentially is israel's greatest peril in the next year, and that is iran's potential nuclear weaponization. and both countries are tied at the hip inso far as what happens to iran. if iran decides to proceed, well, both israel and the united states might find themselves in a conflict against iran. and so there's got to be a better relationship between these two men. not only with respect to iran, but also with respect to israel's growing challenges on its borders, particularly in lebanon with hezbollah in the south with gaza and egypt and, of course, with syria. the last thing that the united states wants is for netanyahu and the israeli people the belief that the president does not have his back and they would have to act unilaterally without due american consultation with israelis. >> and we know, michael, that the president is going to be going to ramallah to be talk
for mitt romney very much opposed to gay marriage. we have seen rob say he is for gay marriage. the shift in this country has been so dramatic and strong on this, we are seeing ceos, hillary clinton, republican senators, republican members of congress, ken melman, ex-republican chair, talked about gay marriage and opposition now being for gay marriage. the court can't ignore how strong the movement in the country, pretty much everyone below 30 is for gay marriage. hard to imagine they'll buck those trends and somehow come against gay marriage. >> it brings me back to the original premise, whether or not some of these folks, whether with their money or megaphone have an opportunity to really influence the conversation, one lone individual, and i am thinking in this case about mark zuckerberg who we mentioned at the top. he has a big vested interest in this, not the only one in silicon valley or tech industries saying we need the best and brightest wherever they're from. it seems like a natural extension that he would be a part of this, that his initial foray into heavy politics would be im
last november and yet he really trounced mitt romney. so in addition to the messaging problem that the republican party clearly has, there's also a demographic problem that they face and that's why you had the soul searching. it was necessary not only to reassure the party activists, but also i think to get donors reassured, as well. there was a risk there that some people were going to stop giving money to the republican party. >> when i talked to ari fleischer in our last hour, he said the message that we have to have is that it's a big tent and here's what he said. >> both parties have these issues. for the republican party, what it means is that republicans need to adhere to our conservative message, our conservative core, but do so in a way that invites other people to join in. we can not do it in a way that pushes people out or says they're not welcome. that's been a real republican problem. we give people the impression that they're not wanted. the power of conservative is that it's an attractive position, it should bring people in because it's how you make it, that's h
presidential election, mitt romney and paul ryan both told us that there were trillions of dollars of tax breaks for very wealthy people, they proposed to eliminate them as part of tax reform where they reduced the rate. we say, let's take some of that revenue to help reduce the deficit, combined with other targeted cuts. >> be more specific for me. when you talk about tax loopholes and the very wealthy. which specific loopholes and what is very wealthy? >> sure, sure, these are, when you're in the highest tax bracket, you're in the 39% tax bracket when you get a deduction, whatever it may be for, you get 39 cents worth of deduction. whereas somebody who is in the 28% tax bracket only gets 28 cents deduction for that particular deduction. so what we're saying and this is similar to a proposal the president's put forward, is that for folks who are in that very high bracket, the 39% bracket, the value of your deductions will be limited to about 28% which is what the value of deductions is for a middle income taxpayer. >> so ultimately, the budget that you have there and i just read the litt
that what mitt romney, while he was running was trying to sell white conservatives to african-americans when he spoke before the naacp. and i wanted to ask the congressman that somehow through this effort somehow white conservatives could relate to people of color. i doubt that him go-around would try to sell the idea of conservatives to -- black -- ervatives to guest: the conservative elements don't just stop with the whites or blacks or anyone. again, i think my main job so represent my constituents and in doing that, if i talk to everyone, i find that it's not so much about policies, philosophies, and theologies, it's trying to understand what people's problems are today and seeing if we can work our way through them, that to me seems to be more compelling than being in a philosophical drive. again, my district is 34% republicans so we have a broad base. i think one of the most important things we can do is balance out those voters in every district that 70% districts they are never going to have to work very hard. i have to work very hard, and frankly i like that. and i think that's what

the juicy earmarks are for special interests. want to know why mitt romney had to fiddle his taxes to get up to a 14% tax rate? which, by the way, is a lower tax rate than a solitary hospital orderly pays walking down the halls of rhode island hospital at night. how does he get it so he has to fiddle his taxes to get up to a rate lower than a hospital orderly pays? how do romney and the hedge fund billionaires pull that trick off? look here in alli babba's cave for the carried interest exception. do you want to know where exxonmobil, which is the richest and most profitable corporation in the history of the world, where exxonmobil gets its hands into the american taxpayers' pockets? look at the big oil subsidies in alli babba's cave. want to know how corporate jets get special favored tax treatment compared to the commercial jets that ordinary mortals fly? look at the accelerated depreciation schedules in ali baba's cave of tax tricks. if using the phrase, "left-wing manifesto" seems a little strident, a little exaggerated about a budget proposal for 50% spending cuts and 50% revenues and yo
challenges with respect to the economy and the budget. governor romney did the same thing. and both of them said the american people faced a very important and fundamental choice. and the american people chose. they chose to support president obama's vision of accelerating economic growth, putting more people back to work, taking a shared responsibility approach to our long-term deficits so we bring them down in a balanced smart way and they rejected the idea that we're going to move the economy forward by giving windfall tax cuts to the very wealthiest in the country and the benefits of that would trickle down and lift everybody up. they rejected that lopsided approach that balance the budgets on the backs of everybody but the folks at the very top. balance the budget on the backs of our kids' education by slashing important investments. in that category of spending we make these important investments for our country and our future, they double the cut from the sequester. so those are our investments in our kids' education. those are our investments in science and research to help power ou

are being planned come out that on the floor of the house today we passed the ryan-romney budget,an jobs-losing which repeals the affordable care act to pick it takes the savings we had in the bill, uses it to sustain their tax breaks that are unnecessary and not job-creating for special interests. hoax you take the money and repealed the bill, but no benefits, but we will keep the savings rate is in sharp contrast to the bill that was a democratic alternative put forward by chris van hollen, our ranking democrat on the budget committee, and that was a bill that was job-creating, investments in infrastructure and innovation that relates to energy, about investing in education so we are competitive and number-one, to build and strengthen and sustained at have commitment to our seniors, whether their economic or their health security. in contrast to the ryan bill, which cuts almost $100 billion from $98 billion, from pell grants. $100 billion from pell grants --pet and crack grants grants. and is a job loser in the short and long term. the contrast could not have been different. one, a sta
. that this is not going to be something we sideline or in the words of mitt romney kicked down the road. >> yeah, that was epic huh? >> hal: holy -- if you want -- let's talk about for a second the perception of the republican party's relationship with israel, and the reality of the democrat's position in their relationship with israel. because republicans ran a guy who did two amazing things during the last campaign. he said openly that's something where you really -- it's never going to be solved and you basically just kick the can down the road and make it the next guy's problem. >> which is an unbelievable thing for a presidential candidate to say about an issue that large. >> hal: especially when you leave a few weeks later to go there to campaign for money. >> and bring donors with you. >> hal: right. and in your sensitivity have your fund raiser on a holiday. remember that? >> yeah. >> hal: they scheduled it on a holiday -- and they were like well -- we'll do it quietly, like we won't serve wine or something. and it's like dude that's not the point! >> no. >> hal: so
of them from conservative states that voted for rick -- mitt romney. also, trying to stop the keystone pipeline, an amendment on carbon taxes and some amendments that republicans got done. things that dealt with climate change and other environmental issues. host: let's move on to the issue we brought you here, the house and senate this week approved legislation to keep the government funded through september, avoiding a shutdown by keeping in place the sequester. explain to us how the government funding will work under this bill. guest: the cr that was passed that heads to the president's desk, they are able to continue funding government passed march 27. it was a fine line they had to walk. republicans were not going to sign off on something but at the same time there were a number who were trying to get pieces of the sequester reinstated. as a result, he put together a , both that compromised sides working together. it leaves in place a lot of the other cuts, air traffic control towers are still going to see problems. other places where there could be furloughs, things like me inspe
? >> this district is definitely red. it heavily favored mitt romney in the presidential race. the state legislature which is controlled by republicans, they have drawn this district for a republican to be able to win it. so it would be very, very difficult for any democrat to secure a win here. that being said though, if anybody can do it, i think elizabeth colbert bush has the best chance. she's well-funded. she's doing well on the campaign trail. she has her famous brother who is helping her out which is getting her a lot of media attention. and perhaps most importantly she's a woman. she's going to be able to go head to head with mark sanford and throw a lot of these personal failings in his face and perhaps get a following among women voters that a man simply could not do. >> going to be interesting. that's for sure. gina smith, we'll be talking with you again. thank you. >> thanks. >>> it is time for the big three and today's topics, what went right, happy anniversary, and best week, worst week. let's bring in the panel, susan del percio, morris reed, and contributor for "newsweek" and the dai
shot up much higher when he was chosen as mitt romney's running mate and now out of the spotlight. >> this story quotes dan senor. for someone who was the nominee, as the story says, the "it" boy, younger face of the republican party, paul ryan has perhaps deliberately been out of the national plilt conversation because he has a busy day job. not only is he chairman of the budget committee with a huge job but been a wing man to speaker boehner even though not a formal member of the top part of membership. ryan has consulted on everything that matters. and has become the tea party whisperer for leadership and the person conservatives trust and he tries to market leadership packages to the conservatives. >> i guess disappearing so far, he hasn't been out nationally as much as he was but not disappearing behind the scenes. >> tuesday night he was told he would not be vice president and wednesday morning, john boehner called him up and said i need you in the middle of the washington. there is no precedent for something coming off a national ticket and going right back into congress wi
, all the way back to lincoln, but today it seems to you have people -- mitt romney day 1 said that he would try to reverse it. in the history of the republican party the republicans have come up with great ideas and new things and people today want to undo that. guest: i appreciate that. what you point out is a fundamental lack of understanding of our own history relative to the things that we as trash or criticize fundamentally being oriented out of the philosophy of the party at that time. the referenced david bacon, talking about the emancipation proclamation, a radical departure from where the country was a the time. you talked about one of my favorites, affirmative action. a lot of republicans will trash that program in a heartbeat not recognizing that it was republicans who created affirmative action. richard nixon during his administration brought together african-american leaders within his administration to put in place a leveling field because he saw that black contractors were not getting a fair deal on federal contract in with their white counterparts. he wanted to create
the ann romney stop it. >> ann: stop it! stop it! this is hard. >> i hate to ask sort of a question that's hanging out there but was she hot? >> stephanie: yeah, she was attractive. but i have family values. i still want to get married. >> you don't want to get your rocks off every once in awhile. >> mile high club opportunity here. with a high corruption value. >> stephanie: you know that's what was happening jim. if she was like -- >> if she said this is hard -- that might have been an indication of something else going on. >> stephanie: i'm not a woman. >> i've got to read you so you can get a full flavor of the insanity of those opposing gay marriage. here is the prayer that we were asked to pray. >> stephanie: take your organ out. >> arguing on behalf of same-sex marriage present their argument in an unconvincing way. [ scooby-doo's "huh?" ] may they fail to gain traction in the minds of the justices. that's what we're supposed to -- >> stephanie: eat my gravel soup bitch. >> i know. >> stephanie: i'm sure ted olson will muck that up. wow. that's nice. >> they're praying for inepti
the conservative movement. calling it the conservative victory project is like mitt romney saying he was a severe conservative. tol rove claims he wants win. why does he think he has a monopoly on wanting to win? we all want to win. why does karl rove need to create a new organization with the name conservative in it? because american crossroads failed in 2012, that is why. did some conservative candidates lose because the made huge mistakes? absolutely, but they would take me all day to list the candidates who lost said it ahoy because they did not run bold conservative campaigns. i like karl. he is a smart guy. i respect him for that. karl rove is no movement conservative. he has been called the architect, and i understand why. he guided president bush in his second term victory, but in reality karl rove and george bush were architects a policy disasters that led to president bush been mired in 30% approval ratings for much of his second term. those ratings hurt republican and conservative brands and brought us president barack obama, and "obamacare." it is kind of the opposite of a permanent r
and talking about a common sense caucus. and we can talk about divisions and point my finger and mitt romney said 47% of the american people. >> i rejected by the way. >> i'm sure you did and so did the american people. >> megyn: that came late. the outreach to the republicans came late in the term, but he's speaking about something more when he's talking about stoking the divisions. but speak to mark's point about undermining the financial stability and his point about the stock market a rebounding and positive economic indicators. if husband goal is to destroy the country, mark-- >> i don't know if mark wants to make that claim today when he sees the stock market react to what's happening in cyprus, and all of a sudden, the stock market and wall street is indicative of prosperous growth on main street, i would definitely take -- we have the highest labor force-- the lowest, rather, labor force participation since the 1980's, mark, you know that. the jobless rate is decreasing because people are leaving the work force. economic growth the rising tide that lifts all boats in our country .1%
ago prime minister netanyahu made it very clear he prefered governor romney back in the 2012 election. however, prime minister netanyahu made it clear though that israel, quote, remained in the present of their right to defend themselves which is clearly talking about an attack on iran which is not something that president obama wanted to see. president obama who at times has been seen a little bit soft on iran for his part tried to make it seem that the united states would always have israel's back. >> the united states of america stands with the state of israel because it is in our fundamental national security interests to stand with israel. it makes us both stronger. it makes us both more prosperous, and it make the world a better place. >> reporter: president obama has an uphill battle on this charm offensive going forward. martha, a recent poll done here in israel only 10% of israelis had a favorable or likeness toward president obama. martha: hmmm. that is a pretty rough number for him there, leland. what is he doing to sort of try to win over the people in israel during this t
that were won by mitt romney. so you have them very cautious about upsetting gun owners and upsetting powerful forces, forces with dollars to spend on campaigns like the nra. gun hobbyists who of course vote and turn out in big numbers behind this issue. this is an issue that will bring out voters to the polls. this is why you had not seen any motion on gun control before newtown. the president despite the concern of people who are gun enthusiasts had not taken any action. feinstein, senator feinstein had not taken any action even though the assault weapons ban had expired just about 10 years earlier. so you see the change. jenna: let's a little bit about that because dianne feinstein says she is disappointed in this. she said if you think congress would listen and clearly listened to the nra. a lot of fingers point to the nra as the reason behind the fact this part of the legislation was dropped. however we had this author on our program, juan, and can you bring up juan, i like to see him when i'm talking to him as well. thank you, i'm sorry. we have fancy graphics just talking to yo
rucker was white house correspondent for and he coveredt" the romney campaign and has been there since 2005. he also covered the obama transition. we talked about what was happening in colorado and what was signed into law there. the governor and other western democrats -- how important are they in terms of leading the charge to change the conversation about the gun control debate? guest: they are very important. western democrats have been some of the biggest defenders on gun rights that have not engaged a conversation on gun control measures. the fact that they are talking about it, and the governor of colorado has signed into law these measures is critical. it is not solely driven by people like joe biden and bloomberg and the northeastern establishment. they are trying to get geographical diversity. that is why joe manchin is a player. it also explains why the democrats in the senate have gone after tom coburn, a republican from oklahoma, who has been most open to a background check bill and he has been negotiating with chuck schumer from new york. it is not clear if he will actual
